i carry the hose

I got a special invitation for VIP access to the women’s restroom at the office today.
Okay, I was in the hall, and the CEO’s Executive Assistant and the COO were talking about fixing some stuff in the women’s bathroom, and I butted in. Apparently the automatic odor eliminator was malfunctioning, and the paper towel dispenser needed new batteries.
You think I was going to pass up this chance to see how the other half live around here?
Check this out:
Couple things. First, the men’s bathroom would never have a sign like this. If there’s a cantaloupe in the toilet, you deal with it, or you go to 7-Eleven. No sign. And NOBODY wants to hear about it (except you, gentle reader).
Second, we have a FACILITIES staff? Whatever. Here’s the staff:
And here’s the full staff, the COO and the CEO’s Executive Assistant. It’s a glamorous job, and somebody’s got to document it (that would be me). Bear in mind that both of these “facilities” members have MBAs.
We don’t have a sign and an attentive executive facilities staff for the men’s bathroom. On the other hand, we don’t have a little file cabinet with women’s hair care products either. So we’ve got that going for us. Which is nice.
